THONON WITH BIREL ART KSW IN GENK, THE BACKGROUND

The Belgian, t with the Austrian division of Birel ART, the KSW of Friedrich Samhaber, will have the official support of Birel ART and the TM Racing engines by Franco Drudi. With the return of Thonon to motorsport in the CIK World, the association with the mechanic Alberto Baldrighi will also be reconstituted. Let’s try to rebuild the dynamics that led to the surprising return of the cannibal to the track.

Time was short and the decision had to be taken quickly: why Thonon tested the “S9” chassis on the Genk circuit on July 19. Struck by the competitiveness of the TM-powered Birel ART by Samhaber, he decided to accept the challenge of the CIK World race.

PREWIEW
The most important moment for KZ drivers is here: the World Championship, an event that crowns the CIK FIA season. This year the event takes place in Genk on the weekend of 9 September. Since 2013, the Belgian track has been the racing season’s most commonly used track, always in the CIK calendar as a stage for the European, and since its first time in 2011 - when in KZ, Jonathan Thonon won with a pass on Yannick de Brabander just before the finish line- the site of the World.

RACING
Just off the shores of Lake Garda, the European KZ and KZ2 Championship titles were awarded to Jorrit Pex and Adrien Renaudin in that order. A championship that ended with a bitter aftertaste for both those who won without a clear show of outstanding supremacy, and for those who did not manage to counter results achieved at Salbris on the first race that was so decisive to assigning the title.

Emilien Denner makes his mark at the Grand Prix of Italy. Adrien Renaudin blesses Salbris and takes the continental title, nine points ahead of Pollini. Worthy of note: the performance of Palomba, third in the final, while Longhi failed in what would have been an epic undertaking.

Federico Albanese takes the Italian flag onto the highest step of the Academy Trophy, winning at home in front of the Brazilian Guilherme De Figueiredo and the Moroccan Suleiman Zanfari. After fighting for pole against Sami Meguetounif, the Roman driver was able to deal with the latter in the Final. In this way, Albanese also comes into play for the success of the championship, scheduled in Genk on the weekend of 9 September on the stage of the KZ World Championship.

Competitive International line-up in New Jersey as the battle for the 2018 US Grand Nationals/US Open titles
Sunday 6:45 am, the alarm clock rings. ÈIt’s the first stopwatch you listen to, but you’re not surprised because you’re already awake and it’s when you can start talking about speed. You get out of bed and make a first effort to show how calm you are, aware that the mythical cold blood of the champion is a perpetual ambition. For the time being, the only cold you feel is the floor under your bare feet.
FOCUS
Weight reduction not only represents a way to increase the performance of a kart, but above all to improve safety. We have carefully analyzed the current situation and have discovered that something can be done. The direct drive classes are where there is more of a margin to this regard.
ON THE TECHNICAL SIDE
Walter Kaaden, one of the greatest technicians in the history of motorcycling competitions, invented the expansion exhaust: with it the 2-stroke; up to then relegated to the role of an engine for utility vehicles, it outclassed the 4-stroke.
